From my friends and I at the Guild:

Muddy Creek Artists Guild (MCAG) will host its “Artists on the Half Shell” gallery show Friday through Sunday, June 3 - 5 at Galesville Memorial Hall, 952 Main Street, Galesville, Maryland.

More than 60 local artists, including 15 new members, will display their painting, photography, sculpture, jewelry, pottery, textiles and works in other media. The gallery show will combine traditional art with the “eclectic originality” portrayed by some Guild members. Many of the works are from The Chesapeake Bay Collection highlighting artwork specifically influenced by living near the Bay. This year the show will be professionally judged and the Golden Oyster Shell will be awarded to the one piece determined to be best in show.
Celebrating its second anniversary the Guild will hold a special reception to announce its first annual Art Scholarship winners from Southern Senior and South River High Schools on Sunday June 5, at 2 p.m. The two winners will also be exhibiting examples of their work.
Admission to the show is free, with music and refreshments each day.

Here’s the schedule:

Friday, June 3: Gallery open from Noon to 8 p.m.
Meet-the-Artists Opening - 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
